Extensions to Public Submission Period

There are 2 categories of development which have different submission periods. As part of the recent Planning Reform Initiative, certain types of development referred to as 'designated developments' are now subject to a longer 28 day (rather than 14 day) public exhibition period. The Planning Notices website will clearly specify the applicable exhibition period. 

Should a person require an extension to the 'standard' (14 day) or 'designated' (28 day) public exhibition period an extension may be requested from the consent authority. Recent changes to the Planning Act 1999 set out that a request for up to a 7 day extension can be made to the consent authority. This is most conveniently done by emailing (citing the application in question) and providing reasons outlining the special circumstances for the extension being required. An extension for more than 7 days is also possible in exceptional circumstances and any such request may also be made via a request to the above email address setting out the reasons for needing the extension. Additional details in regard to this matter are set of in section 49 of the Planning Act 1999
